I have to edit some MP4 video from my first gen GoPro. Any recommendations for a free, downloadable video editor? All I am trying to do is cut out a portion of the video so I can email it.

Thanks.

I use MPEG Streamclip, a free high quality converter for MPEG files, Quicktime and transport streams on my Macs. It can export to Quicktime, DVI, AVI, MPEG-4, etc. and has a robust editor to trim video.

Sony Catalyst Browse will do the job but is a little odd to use. Mark in, mark out, go to export and check the box that say use marks.

I think Handbrake can do about the same thing.

VLC can be made to do this too, but I can't remember the exact steps.

Movie Maker Live though I think this feature is part of the newer Video app in Windows 10.

There are probably 5 different free apps for Win10 in the store, probably all of them will work.

And finally, why not the free GoPro Quik Desktop app?

GoPro Quik freezes.

And finally, not really looking for anyone to talk down to me.

FYI Handbrake is just the front end interface of VLC.

I love me some VLC.

You can also download a free version of bandicam which lets you video anything on your computer screen, but it does degrade the quality. which may be good if you're looking for an email-sized file.

OK, well have fun with that then. Good luck on your project.

And for talking up, Media Composer | First, Lightworks, Davinci Resolve will also all definitely do the job. You could also use a 15 or 30 day demo of just about any editor you choose to use to get this single clip sliced up.

Also, Handbrake, Streamclip, etc. are based on ffmpeg. ffmpeg can be used to chop up clips, but without a GUI you'll need to know what you are doing with the command line arguments. There are a lot of tools out there based on ffmpeg, including some that are used for high level professional use. VLC uses ffmpeg for some of its work, but not exclusively like Streamclip and Handbrake.
